The Fun Fair is back - March 29
The much anticipated Fun Fair has been advanced 8 months to March 29th (after our 3rd successful fair in November 2012). Families in the school will be receiving their own pack of information relating to volunteering, sponsorships and armband sales. The most important information is that it is on less than 6 weeks. To help the organising committee we need a concerted effort from all and most importantly, for helpers to respond quickly to the information coming out. All initial enquiries and sponsorship questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org - Set the day aside and circle it large on your calendars and in your online phones and diaries - it will be HUGE!

Primary Students Helping Build a Bridge: An Update
Monday 21st October, 2013
On the last day of term two, students brought in coins to be stuck onto sheets of cardboard that were used to cover a wooden bridge set up in the hall for the final assembly of the term. An amount of $929.80 was raised on the day. The weight of the coins on the wire that was strung to represent part of the bridge was so heavy, the wire broke under the stress. This was a great sign showing the generosity of the students to support this cause.
WCCS continues to raise money for a bridge to span a river in the Maphutseng valley of Lesoto. The bridge is needed to cross the river to get to school. In the wet season, the river becomes dangerous to cross and students cannot get to school or have to sleep in the school overnight if the river rises during the day when they are at school. This project, which is being shared between WCCS and Georges River Grammar School, is an ongoing partnership between the schools here in Australia and the community in the Maphutseng Valley.
Smoke and Asthma Alert
Monday, 21st October, 2013
Does your child suffer from Asthma? If so, parents should ensure your child comes to school with their Asthma medication. Asthma Puffers are best administered using a spacer which will get more medication into their lungs. Remember the School Clinic will assist your child to take their medication correctly.
Michele Goldman, CEO of the Asthma Foundation NSW says, “while fire can damage property and threaten life, it can also seriously affect the health of people with medical conditions, especially those who live with asthma. Wood smoke is a prime trigger for what could be a potentially fatal asthma attack.
